Ladeco began operations on November 1, 1958 flying mostly internal routes between Chile's major cities and some international routes.
In 1994, Lan Chile bought over 99% of the shares and merged Ladeco into its fleet. At the time of the takeover, Ladeco was equipped mainly with Boeing 737s as well as some 727s and 757s. Ladeco then became exclusively an internal carrier between Chilean cities. In 1998, Ladeco merged with Fast Air, ita name has since disappeared and most internal routes were taken by a new affiliate of LAN called LAN Express.
